Continental, The

Continental, The
(Con Conrad, Herb Magidson)

Tid-Bettes: Bette would often close her show at The Continental Baths with this number.

Beautiful music
Dangerous rhythm

It’s something daring, the Continental
A way of dancing that’s really ultra new
It’s very subtle, the Continental
Because it does what you want it to do

It has a passion, the Continental
An invitation to moonlight and romance
It’s quite the fashion, the Continental
Because you tell of your love while you dance

Your lips whisper so tenderly
His eyes answer your song

Two bodies swaying, the Continental,
And you are saying just what you’re thinking of
So keep on doing the Continental
For it’s the dance of romance and of love

Kiss while you’re dancing
The Continental it’s continental
Sing while you’re dancing
Your voice is gentle, mmm sentimental

You’ll know before the night is through
That you’re in love with him and
He’s in love with you

You’ll find while you’re dancing
That there’s a rhythm in your heart and soul
A certain rhythm that you can’t control
And you will do the Continental all the time

Beautiful music
Dangerous rhythm

You’ll know before the night is through
That you’re in love with him and
He’s in love with you

Oh, you’ll find while you’re dancing
That there’s a rhythm in your heart and soul
A certain rhythm that you can’t control
And you will do the Continental all the time

Oh, beautiful music
Dangerous rhythm
The Continental
